Are you in the midst of designing your dream wardrobe? Then you may be wondering how best to use your space. There are almost endless ways to organise your wardrobe nowadays, which can make it hard to figure out how to design your room to suit your needs.
That’s why we’ve put together this list of six features you should include in your walk-in wardrobe that’ll make getting ready better than ever!
Mirrors are essential for any walk-in wardrobe. We suggest opting for two mirrors if possible – one long mirror to check yourself from head to toe, and one smaller mirror to sit in your dressing area. This is perfect for doing your hair and make up!
2. An accessory area
When designing wardrobes, people often get hung up on their clothing and forget to factor in storage for accessories. Create a zone in your wardrobe where items such as sunglasses, jewellery, belts, hats, scarves and handbags can live. This will stop items being strewn everywhere and make it quicker and easier to get ready in the morning.
3. Effective lighting
Good quality lighting can really take your space to the next level, giving it a sense of luxury and elegance. Not only this, but it’s practical too – as you’ll need adequate lighting to find your belongings and put outfits together. You could opt for a combination of lighting, such as task lights in individual closets and overhead pendants.
4. Various storage solutions
One of the most important things to get right is your storage combinations. It’s worth getting a mixture of different hanging heights that allow you to store various items, from long dresses to t-shirts and blouses. You may also want to include shelving for items like bags and shoes, drawers for undergarments and swimwear, and pull out trays for watches.
5. An island
If you want your wardrobe to have the wow factor, it’s worth intsalling an island in the centre of the closet. Of course, this depends on the size of the room, so only go for it if it’ll leave sufficient space to walk around and get dressed. Your island could be used for additional storage or to showcase your favourite pieces.
6. A dressing table
It’s worth allocating a section of your wardrobe to house a dressing table and chair. It will give you a specific space to do make up, style your hair or simply relax with a cup of coffee while you’re getting ready in the morning. Choose a solution with drawers or baskets that you can store make up and hair styling products so they’re within easy reach.
Hopefully, this will give you some inspiration to create the well-organised wardrobe of your dreams!
